Endgame by CJ Daugherty

Broken. Scattered. But not defeated.

The spy is gone but the cost has been high - the rebels at Cimmeria Academy have lost their leader and Carter West is missing. Nathaniel can taste victory. But Allie and the other survivors aren't done yet. First they have to get Carter back. Then they plan to make Nathaniel pay.

One way or another - the game must end.

Endgame is the thrilling fifth and final book in the internationally bestselling Night School series.

Starts right where Resistance left off, Allie being zoomed away from the action for her protection and abandoning Carter with Nathaniel. Immediately we catch up with the drama and the turmoil of having left without Carter but they have to prepare for Nathaniel's next move after the horrific accidents at the parley.

Throughout the final installment, Allie and Isabelle are preparing for the worst: Nathaniel taking over Cimmeria. But they do have an ace up their sleeve, which I think was incredible thinking on Allie's part. Even as they search for any scrap of a clue on Carter's whereabouts, there is never a dull moment. From infiltrating Nathaniel's comms to planning a rescue mission, the students are swept up in the action, sometimes leaving me a little breathless!

We have watched Allie grow up from a troublesome teenager and this is where she really comes into her own. She was so damn impressive with handling Nathaniel alongside her heartbreak and guilt. Plus she had some wicked back-up, all of whom I adored all the more in this last book. Especially Rachel and Nicole - that was an adorable side story, one I guessed about 2 books ago but still sweet! 

This was an epic end to an amazing series. Allie and her friends have gone through so much hurt, to finally have a happy ending is incredible and I'd say they deserve it!
